Cunningham discussed the marketing strategy used when Dark Knight Rises came out, where DC put out posters at retailers listing "essential Batman" stories. A similar campaign is happening for Man of Steel.
Batman #21 and ‘Zero Year' are discussed next. Harras says the book will tell the origins of Batman in the New 52. He promises to remain true to the character, though they'll change a few things.
Next up was Talon: Tynion is excited to get to the heart of Bane, and bring him back to his roots. DC will build a supporting cast around Bane.
Harras talked about Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship, calling it one of the more interesting things to happen in the New 52. He also said that Superman has unresolved feelings for Lois, and teased a love triangle.
About the Cyborg Superman, Harras said, "I think the design is awesome, and he'll be turning up soon.” He declined to answer questions about how the character might tie into New 52 continuity of Superman and Hal Jordan.
Palmiotti talked about Batwing #19 and the new Batwing, Lucius Fox's son Luke. He pointed out that Batman Byond was an influence on the character's design. Batman will not tell Lucius he's working with Luke, which will surely cause friction down the line. The book will tie in more closely with the rest of the Bat books.
Detective Comics introduces The Wrath, who's getting the New 52 treatment as the Anti-Batman, with "a lot of money, gadgets, and cars, and guns. And he hates cops."
Azrael’s return is permanent, and he’ll be part of the Bat-universe.
More details on Joker’s origin is coming up. See 'Year Zero'.
